Registration open for Camp Broadway 2013
Camp Broadway, a performing arts summer camp for theater-loving kids children 10 to 17, is headed back to ASU Gammage, June 24-28 for its 17th year.
The camp sells out every year, so reserve today, by calling 480-965-5062. Campers work collaboratively with Broadway’s most distinguished performers, writers and designers and will have a chance to see the Tony Award winning musical "Sister Act" and meet the cast and crew. Camp tuition is $600 and includes the week-long training, lunch and snacks daily, a behind-the-scenes tour of ASU Gammage and a ticket to the show.
Camp Broadway gives young people an introduction to Broadway – on stage and behind the scenes. Camp classes include acting, scene study, improvisation, music theory, singing and dancing. The camp fosters teamwork, discipline, commitment and support while introducing kids to the world of Broadway and all aspects of putting a show together in a professional, interactive and theatrical environment. The week-long day camp culminates in a final performance, the “Family Finale.”
Alumni camper Brian Goldsberry attended Camp Broadway for seven summers and describes it as “an amazing experience you can’t get anywhere else.”
The camp is intended for youngsters of all interests and enthusiasm is the only requirement, as no theater experience is needed.
“We introduce classic Broadway to new generations, so that we can keep live theater alive," said Tony Parise, Camp Broadway artistic director. "Broadway theater has a unique heritage. Around the world, 'Broadway' means a distinctive sense of excitement and magic. It is this one-of-a-kind spirit that drives Camp Broadway.”
"Sister Act" is Broadway’s acclaimed musical comedy based on the smash-hit film. When disco diva Deloris Van Cartier witnesses a crime, the cops hide her in the last place anyone would think to look – a convent. Under the suspicious watch of Mother Superior, Deloris helps her fellow sisters find their voices as she unexpectedly rediscovers her own.
